    my hair is pain.
    my mouth is a cave of cries.
    my room is filled with white coats
    shaped like God.

    their stethoscopes.
    they are testing their chemical faith.

    my dream about the poet
    a man.
    ¡ think it is a man.
    sits down with wood.
    i think he’s holding wood.
    he carves.
    he is making a world
    he says
    as his fingers cut citizens
    trees and things
    which he perceives to be a world
    but someone says that is
    only a poem.
    he laughs.
    i think he is laughing.

    my dream about being white
    hey music and
    me
    only white,
    hair a flutter of
    fall leaves
    circling my perfect
    line of a nose,
    no lips,
    no behind, hey
    white me
    and i’m wearing
    white history
    but there’s no future
    in those clothes
    so i take them off and
    wake up
    dancing.

    female
    there is an amazon in us.
    she is the secret we do not
    have to learn.
    the strength that opens us
    beyond ourselves.
    birth is our birthright.
    we smile our mysterious smile.

    daughters
    i am the sieve she strains from
    little by little
    everyday.
    i am the rind
    she is discarding.
    i am the riddle
    she is trying to answer.
    something is moving
    in the water.
    she is the hook.
    i am the line.

    and bullets,
    where is the love
    in my education?
